You know when you do something wrong and you start cursing at your misfortunes, well I've been there this weekend. I replaced my front bearings and put the mill back together, all the time "KNOWING" I was doing it right (done it a few times and now do not need the instructions ) and did not check the piston position. When I take things apart I always place items on the bench in the way they are to go back. Well I should of double checked as I put the piston around the wrong way
I have been unable to run it in the last fortnight due to the weather and family commitments and finely had time to play today. Well, got it fueled up, glow igniter on and started to tug away at the pull start. She fired up with a bit of throttle and run great till I let off the throttle to go down to idle. I could not get her to idle at all. After a while of pulling and going over my settings realised what I may had done wrong. After another break down, I found my piston around the wrong way.
Well that was where my impatience to get the truck running came to play, I pushed the sleeve in to fast and hard and check the following Pic I was gutted and now have to wait up to 10 days to get a new sleeve and piston. Then it's break in period before I can really play, again I'm gutted at myself
